Okay I know you may got this kind of question before but why have you stopped doing your reviews on your YouTube Channel?
omg I don’t know how long this was in my inbox but I’m so sorry! I only just noticed this question now!
Anyways, yeah I do get this question fairly often (About once every few months or so) but I don’t mind answering it again.
Simply put: Real life got in the way along with technical limitations. Shinko’s VA and artist at the time got really busy with school and I was struggling with an old computer and a REALLY outdated version if iMovie to edit all of the episodes. I kind of hit a wall with the Negaverse Arc because what I wanted to do just couldn’t be done with iMovie.
There’s actually three ‘lost’ reviews that never made it out of production: Prince and the Pauper, Disney Scene-It, and Nightmare Ned. All three were bogged down by tech problems, and the more and more time went past the less motivated I was to keep going until the show just quietly came to a halt.
I have thought about making a comeback, but it’s a matter of ‘how would I do it?’ and more importantly ‘Would anyone care?’.
The fact is, back when Hikari and I first did Lenny and Shinko it was like the wild west, Internet Reviews were a new thing, and we were lucky enough to get in on the ground floor and get a following. Now there’s a new reviewer every time you turn your head! I fear we’d just be another voice at the shouting contest…
More importantly, Youtube’s copyright system has gotten so advanced since the late 2000′s, reviewers are always in danger nowadays of getting stricken down; ESPECIALLY with a subject matter like the almighty Disney!
If we ever did go back to Lenny and Shinko, I had two ideas: An ‘Adventures Of’ series that’d be more story-focused instead of reviews and actually show how the two met each other.
If we did reviews again, I’d like it to be a continuation and be like the 2011 Muppet Movie: a ‘getting the band back together’ story. Complete with a rendition of ‘Pictures in my Head’
But for now…I don’t know. I AM working on a big professional-style project though, which I’m keeping under wraps for now. I also fear that said project would get in the way of I went back to Lenny and Shinko
So the future is uncertain for that series right now, but you can always look at Shinko’s tumblr page Ask Shinko!
